CHAPTER XXX - FLIGHT

arrived at the castle, she had remonstrated with him, but all to no effect. Nothing could remove his impression that they were on a holiday through the kindness of some friend whose identity he did not seem to know.
Molly was amazed, but, as time went on, her mood changed and she grew very frightened. No one seemed to bother about them. Here they were, in an enormous castle with hundreds of rooms and almost as many servants-so it seemed to Molly-and yet never a sign of any owner !
Of course she learned who the owner was ; but she had never met or heard of the Comte, and certainly did not know he was on Tyneside-so near her home. As time wore on, she began to seek a way of escape. She could see that her father would be of no use for aiding in such a purpose, but she had quite enough courage for the two of them.
Many a time, she stood at different points in or near the castle, and absorbed its beauty. The great battlements and their rising turrets ; the huge pile of buildings themselves, with their massive grey hand-hewn blocks of stone ; the cobbled courtyard opening out on the fourth side into green lawns and gay gardens ; how wonderful it all was ! And how peaceful. The tremendous gateway, which once had housed the formidable portcullis, was now kept open and free of access. Yet, with all this appearance of freedom and peace, Molly sensed something sinister and cruel about it.
Her greatest concern, however, was her father. The Commander was well enough in health-and indeed in mind too-with this exception : he could not understand that there was anything unusual going on, and he had totally forgotten all about his guns.
